Introduction: Cheap Pellet Catching Airsoft Target.
In this Instructable I'll show you how to make a cheap airsoft target that saves you losing pellets.
Give that you hit the target there is an almost 100% chance that you will lose no pellets. I recommend that you get an adult or someone above 15 to cut the lid in step 3 as this can be very hard and dangerous. By the way this is my first Instructable so be nice :)
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gather the Materials.
The following are needed for this target.
1.Biscuit tin(preferably square)
2.Something sharp ie. a knife or a scissors(a knife being preferred) I used a blade from a multi purpose tool.
4.Duct tape or masking tape
5.Paper or card, if you use card make sure your gun can shoot through it.
6.A drill is useful for starting the cutting by giving the blade a hole to start from. Although not necesary i seriously reccomend using one. Again, have an adult do this part.
Step 2: Marking the Square to Cut Out for the Target.
This step is fairly easy. Just mark the edges of the targets and join the lines.
1.What you're aiming for
2.Marking the points for the sides of the square.
3.Joning the dots to form a full square.
4.BTW make sure you leave some space outside the square so that your pellets won't fall out
Step 3: Cutting the Lid
i drilled holes around the square to make it easier to cut but as i said before it's not required. It does however make it a hell of a lot easier. This step is hard to explain apart from saying just cut the line you marked so start cutting and good luck.
Step 4: Finishing the Target
1. Cover the sharp sides of the square with the tape to stop getting cut every time you touch it. I cut the tape i used in half because the sides were too small to take the full width of the tape.
2.Tape the target to the inside of the lid.
4.I taped this inside to prevent the pellets from bouncing back. It also lets the pellets fall to the bottom letting you take them out easily.
5.The original target i made
6.I used this a LOT!!!!
